Look Book – Iridescent Fabrics

By on May 4, 2014

Remember that moment at Coachella 2013 where Tupac stepped on stage as a holograph and basically blew everyone’s minds? Yeah, take a minute and Youtube that right now…can you say EPIC!!! Well that moment changed music, technology and fashion. The idea of the holograph inspired new fabrics and trends in fashion and now several designers have began using iridescent fabrics and sequence to create a metallic look to amp up your wardrobe. Christopher Kane, Tom Ford and Roberto Cavalli are just a few designers who sent this holographic trend down the runway, starting a hot new trend for Spring Summer 2014. Try making a statement with a sequence skirt, or if you want to be subtle try accessorizing with a sleek pair of sandals or a bag to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe. So ladies, as Rihanna once said, “shine bright like diamond”.


This mermaid-like skirt is sure to make you sparkle in the sunshine this summer! Try it with some nude pumps and a cool graphic tee. Tuck your shirt in in the front and let it hang in the back for a casual chic look. Finish your look with a chunky necklace and a cool bag that pulls out the colors in the skirt.
